This bottling represents an appellation blend of lots they feel express the characteristics of Happy Canyon; explosive, bright yellow and tropical fruits and melons balanced by fresh, clean and present acidity, but without the herbaceousness sometimes associated with the grape.
ANTONIO GALLONI 92 POINTS - "These wines from Dragonette move from strength to strength. I was blown away by what I tasted. Dragonette has long specialized on Sauvignon Blanc. The four bottlings are distinctive and alluring. "
"The 2020 Sauvignon Blanc (Happy Canyon) is a gorgeous wine that captures all the personality of Happy Canyon in its bright, floral character, all while showing quite a bit of depth and structure as well. This is the most taut of the Dragonette Sauvignon Blancs. Vineyard sites are Grimm's Bluff, Grassini, Vogelzang and Two Wolves."
JEB DUNNUCK 90 POINTS - "A classic, age-worthy Sauvignon well worth seeking out, the 2020 Sauvignon Blanc Happy Canyon from Dragonette offers up a light gold hue as well as a beautiful, Bordeaux Blanc-like array of lemon curd, crushed citrus, white flowers, and chalky minerality. Drink this balanced, elegant, juicy, and just pretty and lively Sauvignon over the coming 4-5 years."
